Why Fostering Matters
Please take a second to look at these two photos. Same dog, the photos taken one week apart. It looks like a completely different dog, right? So what changed? What made Daisy appear happy & calm this week, rather than anxious like last week? The Answer: A Foster Home.
Daisy was at a shelter - a good shelter, we might add. The volunteers there care for the animals and give them the necessities, plus as much attention and time in the yard as possible. But, it's not a real home.
Now, Daisy is being fostered by a loving family, in a real home. She is sleeping on a real bed, getting the restful sleep she's been missing these past months in the shelter.
For many dogs like Daisy, a one-month stay in a foster home can mean the difference between life and death. Most shelter dogs simply need the calm and quiet of a real home in order to become relaxed and "adoptable."
So, what do you think? Are you able to open your home for a few weeks - even just once a year - to help save a dog's life? Talk it over with your family and then contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how fostering works. It's easier than you might think!
